Back Porch Restaurant Restaurant Review

: For decades, Back Porch Restaurant has served American dishes in a cozy environment. The property debuted as a restaurant on Valentine's Day 1975 and since has offered specials on that holiday. Diners enjoy glowing fireplaces in winter and a patio in summer. The menu offers familiar comforts. A house specialty is the one-plate meal of main, vegetable and salad. For sweets, there's an array of choices.

Horrible. Used to be one fo the best restuarants around. While a little out of the way, it was well worth the drive to the awesome location and atmosphere - just tucked away. Unfortunately, it seems that the Back Porch has done away with their chef. The steaks we all totally over done, not to mention that they were lousy cuts of meat. At $34 for filet oscar, the filet should be thick and cooked correctly. It was thin, tough and way overcooked. Also, the $34 price does not include soup or salad. What used to be and excellent dish, the New Zealand lamb, was completely awful. It was way overcooked and way over seasoned. So unfortunate. We should have walked out after looking at the wedge salad - brown around the outside and the lobster bisque in which the only lumps were the undissolved clumps of flour. This place has gone way up in price and way down in quality. With so many wonderful restaurants in the Pittsburgh area, we will take our money elsewhere.
